In celebration of Jordan Brand’s 23 year anniversary, a “Cigar and Champagne” Pack is being released for the second year straight. The retro Air Jordan 7 are known as the sneakers MJ wore on the way to his second NBA championship in 1992. This NBA Finals featured a heated series between Michael’s Chicago Bulls and the Portland Trailblazers, where we saw the iconic Michael Jordan “Shrug Game”.
This release features ”Maroon/Metallic Gold” with a gum outsole (Cigar) as well as a “White/Black/Metallic Gold” (Champagne) pair. These kicks will also feature championship ring lacelocks. The Air Jordan 7 “Cigar and Champagne” Pack will release Saturday, June 20th, and retail for $250 each. However, with Nike still working on its online store, sneakerheads need to find another way to cop this heat.

After these playoffs are over and people aren’t talking about LeBron James place in history, or how special the Golden State Warriors season was, but about Stephen Curry’s daughter young Riley Curry. Curry became a superstar over these past weeks, and the internet made sure that her stardom would be memorable.

Steph Curry seems to have had a perfect year. Winning MVP, a championship, and his daughter is a social media star.

During halftime of Game 6 of the NBA finals, Coach David Blatt of the Cleveland Cavilers wanted to motivated his team to give more effort in the second half. Smith looked as if he just wanted to get to the off-season quick, fast and in a hurry. Smith had a burst in the fourth to make the game interesting but it was too late as the Warriors were able to defeat the Cavs in 6 games.
The Cavs season is over, and LeBron James is coming to grips with reality
The Golden State Warriors finally finished off the Cleveland Cavaliers last night in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, but the Cavs’ inability to make it to Game 7 had nothing to do with a lack of effort from LeBron James. In one of the most historic NBA Finals performances from a numbers standpoint, James led both teams in points, assists and rebounds. He is the first player in the history of the league to do so.
Still, there’s no denying that these 6 games, and the post-season in general, has taken a toll on James’ energy and body, and he reiterated that point to a reporter after last night’s loss at Quicken Loans Arena. The question was centered around James’ strict workout and conditioning regiment, and whether or not LeBron ever looks back on it, and asks himself “was it worth it?” after a losing effort.
LeBron began answering the question as if he were casually speaking to one of his friends in confidence. He mentioned that sometimes he feels that sometimes it’s better to miss the playoffs entirely than to make the NBA Finals and lose, which isn’t something most NBA superstars would admit for fear of heavy criticism. He would clarify his comments a few seconds later and say that any time he begins thinking that, he usually quickly “locks in” and rids his mind of those thoughts, but it was too late, the following tweet and its contents had pretty much already gone viral.

This in no way means that LeBron James would actually rather miss the playoffs than compete for the ultimate reward: an NBA Championship. It merely means he’s human, and sometimes, like we all do, it takes an extra level of focus, concentration, and inspiration to remember why we do what we do, and put ourselves through the struggles we put ourselves through.
If the Warriors are to win the Finals, they’ve got a point
Draymond Green is the gritty, voracious young forward that is as key a piece of the Golden State Warriors’ NBA Finals run as the league’s MVP, Stephen Curry, his All-Star running mate Klay Thompson, and first-year head coach Steve Kerr. That point’s been illustrated in these playoffs. Where Draymond Green goes, the team usually follows, and when his performance is in the dumps, the Warriors often have to fight to be in the game, or just end up losing.
Green’s mother and grandmother have been front-row witnesses to this dynamic all season, and with their young star’s team down 2-1 to the best player on the planet and his band of brothers, they took action. According to Black Sports Online, Green’s elders told him to get it together and stop crying with the referees.
My mom and my grandma told me I’m crying too much. ‘Leave the officials alone and just play. They’ve got you out there looking like you’re a punk and don’t know how to play basketball.
Needless to say, Green came out with a renewed focus in Game 4, and the Warriors pretty much shot the Cavaliers out of Quicken Loans Arena. Game 5 is tomorrow night, expect to see a complaint-less Draymond Green once again.
Looks like Steve Kerr’s got some help in the coaching area.

Historical moments in sports have transpired over the past couple of days as you had to be glued in front of your television to experience it live. #SportsTwitter was all the way turned up as the premiere best of the best gave another reminder to fans of why he’s capable of strongly being considered the G.O.A.T. to ever lace up a pair of basketball sneakers. A seasoned vet to the tennis game continues to add on to her legacy amongst the all time greats while another rare Triple Crown feat has been conquered and it did not happened in the sport of baseball. The Source Sports’ own Omari White was able to become a witness of these moments of epic proportions and he took valuable time out to explain why him and all the fans worldwide had every reason to get their Daniel Bryan on and scream out YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
Game 2 Of The NBA Finals (Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors)
Game 2 of this highly unpredictable NBA Finals can be looked at as a turning point of what maybe considered as the beginning of a bright light shining through the door of greatness the Cavs can walk through. It seemed like everything was going right for Cleveland as they was able to make tough plays and stops without their All Star point guard Kyrie Irving. Shumpert and Smith showed glimpse of why they are a part of this finals run as they made some clutch 3’s towards the end of the game. Mazgov was able to take full advantage of times when the Warriors went small. Matthew Dellavedova is slowly developing into a reliable defender, as he was able to hold Steph Curry to 5 for 23 shooting. Meanwhile, he was able to be a play maker during crunch time, grabbing a outstanding rebound and showing he has ice in his veins by knocking down two clutch free throws. Lastly, the King himself formerly known as LeBron James gave another masterpiece performance as he was able to go for another triple double, 39 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists. Granted, he may be the most disliked hooper in the league but you got to give credit where credit is due. Being sworn and hacked by Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green, and Harrison Barnes and referees missing foul calls, James was able to play through the physicality. Bron Bron was able to show fans that he was able to learn how to be a more clutch player during crunch time thanks to his previous NBA Finals experience at Miami. This is something essential everyone has been looking for in James as the entire sports world all knows he literally is fighting for his life to add some major resume worthy performances to his legacy and a spot of the Mt. Rushmore of basketball greats. Through three games, LeBron scored a total of 123 points, the most by anyone in NBA Finals history. The King is on a entirely different level by attempting to prove the sports fans that Meek Mill is accurate when he said it’s “levels to this shhhh”. The king is on the rise of becoming the immortal one, watch out Golden State.
You ain’t got no freakin’ Yeezy at your press conference?
Kanye West has had some kinda week, what with his wife, Mrs. Kim Kardashian-West renting out the Staples Center so he, Tyga, Justin Bieber, 88 Keys, John Wall and more could play the craziest pick-up game of their lives, not to mention the announcement that he and Mrs. West will be welcoming child number 2, allegedly North’s younger brother.
Well, the fun just keeps on coming for West, who had the opportunity to sneak up on the podium after the Golden State Warriors’ Game 4 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers last night, and pretend that he was fielding questions from eager reporters, some of whom hung back to get some snapshots of Kanye being Kanye. Check out a video clip below.
Yes, that was Steve Stoute yelling out “That’s Riley!” This girl is out of here.

This cameraman got way more than he bargained for. Or did he?
LeBron James has got to be completely spent after these last few games. His ridiculous 40-point average through the first 3 games kept the Cavs not only in the series, but atop it, until the Warriors stormed back and stole their home-court advantage back in Game 4 last night. The above video clip is just a part of a really bizarre night for LeBron James.
Outside of the fact that his potent teammates went completely cold, and he crashed into cameraman’s row after being fouled, putting a circular (and bleeding) indentation in the back of his head, LeBron James inadvertently flashed millions of people last night, when ABC caught him fixing his shorts (and his under-shorts) before tip-off last night.
It’s a wonder someone caught this, and if you happen not to be able to see it, check out a snapshot here, in which you can very visibly see the 4-time MVP’s, erm, junk.
